IP Address Geolocation with Confidence Area API
The IP Address Geolocation with Confidence Area API is based on the same data and accuracy as the IP Geolocation API, but with an additional layer of information on top - the Confidence Area.
The Confidence Area is an essential feature of the IP Address Geolocation, providing a list of coordinates that define a closed polygon representing the maximum possible service area where an IP address could be located. This information is based on the historical allocation of IP addresses by Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and the network topology.
The Confidence Area feature can be useful for various applications that require a higher level of precision in geolocation, such as fraud detection, risk analysis, and targeted advertising. For more detailed information on Confidence Area, you can refer to the What is Confidence Area? FAQ on our website.
This API is part of the IP Geolocation package and is available in free and paid plans. Please visit the IP Geolocation package page for limits and pricing information.

Requested IP address in a string format.
localityLanguage input parameter received
Indicated whether the IP address is present on the global routing table, hence reachable. If not reachable, the IP address is not in use and therefore cannot be geolocated
Indicates the time of when that particular IP address’s geolocation was assessed the last
